LINCOLN belongs to the ages. Steven Spielberg's landmark motion picture enriches the American canon - freeing the Great Emancipator from his tintype image and exploring the wit and wisdom that made the man. Daniel Day-Lewis is instantly iconic, demonstrating an immersion into character that is as honest as it is immediate. Sally Field, Tommy Lee Jones and an extraordinary acting ensemble breathe humanity into history, while Tony Kushner's brilliant screenplay illustrates the power of words to dazzle above the most special of effects. Film legends D.W. Griffith and John Ford each depicted their versions of America's sixteenth president, and Spielberg's now stands beside them with this telling for our time - and for all time.

WAR HORSE advances Steven Spielberg's gallant charge into the history of American film. A masterpiece from foal to finish, the film is an epic odyssey of friendship against all odds. Marked by a driving intensity in each scene - from the plowing of a field to the battlefields of World War I - this is grand scale filmmaking in the tradition of John Ford and David Lean, but presented with a brave and bold emotion only imaginable from Spielberg and his talented team. WAR HORSE is proof that miracles can happen.

THE CURIOUS CASE OF BENJAMIN BUTTON is a modern movie miracle. Aglow in the wonderment of time, the film captures the poetry and pain of life with such originality that audiences may not want to awake from the dream the film casts upon them. Working from a screenplay by Eric Roth, David Fincher clocks in again as one of the most exciting voices in American film, and his extraordinary use of technology, often the enemy of performance, serves only to enhance Brad Pitt's brilliant turn in the title role. Pitt's chemistry with Cate Blanchett creates one of film history's most powerful screen romances, reminding us all of the preciousness of each passing moment.

THE DIVING BELL AND THE BUTTERFLY is a soaring cinematic achievement, one where the transportive nature of film takes us inside the mind of a paralyzed protagonist. Director Julian Schnabel astounds in his fusion of poetry, humor and profound humanity to examine the struggle from inside the mind as the character reaches for the impossible. Janusz Kaminski's brilliant cinematography illuminates the film's commanding point of view, visually enveloping the audience in the deeply emotional, but remarkably unsentimental screenplay by Ronald Harwood. Adapted from an extraordinary true story, the film challenges us to look into a mirror, appreciate the fragility of our own lives and marvel at the power of the mind.

MUNICH reminds us how lucky we are to live in the time when Steven Spielberg is making movies. This is another landmark contribution to American film from one of its master storytellers. The movie asks difficult questions about the moral complexities of vengeance - and who, ultimately, stands proud in the name of family and home. Great movies stir great debate, and that Spielberg would embrace such a controversial subject and present it as a prayer for peace is as brave and bold a move as we would expect from one of this country's great artists.
